I'm OK with what these patches want to achieve. I had several patches
prepared for similar purposes in sunxi (apart from the new image
building code), but were never finalized due to responsibilities
elsewhere, as one of the "obvious reasons" mentioned earlier (by Daniel
IIRC). Whether you are merging these into trunk before or after your
release and/or the merge, is obviously at your discretion.
Having said that, if such major target reworks happen, and we seem to be
geared towards a merge, it would be appreciated if you cc the
openwrt-devel list so people over there would be aware.
